Review and photos by Predasaurskillekor, edited by Suspsy
This is my very first review for the Dinosaur Toy Blog and I have chosen this model. The 2014 1/35 scale Yutyrannus huali is the first model created by the UK brand called REBOR. It is a very good and realistic model, and unfortunately, there are not many versions of this unique species (there is only this one, the Wild Safari, and the Kaiyodo one). REBOR gave their model the name “Y-REX.”
This model is very not big, but it’s not little either. It measures 27 cm long and is 10.5 cm tall (15 cm with the base). The skin of the Yutyrannus is of a colour similar to ochre with black stripes. The feathers are a dirty shade of blue, the feet and the hands are brown, and the claws are black. The muzzle is grey with yellow and red near the tip.
The Yutyrannus has the correct number of digits on its hands and the head features two small horns. But there’s a glaring scientific error: the feathers should cover almost the entire body, including the hind legs. This is one area where the other two Yutyrannus figures are much better. Still, it’s a very detailed model (like all the REBOR products), and REBOR does have some figures that are comparable to Safari, CollectA, or any other brand.
This kit also comes with an polystone base, which looks slightly cinnabar and represents the icy territory where this monster lived.
In addition, there is an information card, with the main facts, pictures of fossils, and size of Yutyrannus in relation to man. I think that is a great idea.
Not only the model, the base, and the card are beautiful, but the box has a fantastic illustration of the skeleton as well, and if you get any REBOR model, be sure to save the box.
Overall, this REBOR model is of a very good quality (although it made a mistake with the feathering). It’s not the best Yutyrannus on the market, but I do recommend it. Unfortunately, it can be very difficult to acquire in continents other than Asia, America, or the UK.
Thanks for reading my review.
